Safe & Sound Hillsborough seeks your assistance in doing just that, working together to build strong families, safe schools and healthy neighborhoods. We believe it is critical to address all forms of violence as a public health issue. And the fact is that our community has a violence problem. The problem includes domestic violence, bullying, abuse affecting our most vulnerable children and seniors, and firearms in the hands of criminals who wish to do harm.
